Okay, this one just surfaced and not mine like my long lost 61 Experto Crede Deluxe.
Got a call from somebody that lives not more than 35 miles from me in Wisconsin and it seems that he was helping clean out a garage space in Chicago for someone a few years ago. That person had a few bikes, so for helping his Artist friend clean out the space he was given this bike for FREE !! This person called me this A.M. as my name appeared on Google when he searched for Hetchins. I've called Len Ingram and this frame was not on the Hetchins records, which now it is. The frame looks restored with full chrome lugs and a metallic Silver enamel, a beatuful 71/72 Vade Mecum MKII.
This proves there are still hidden treasures out there to be found.
